iPhone 5 Display Review
By Chris Heinonen on
When it comes to smartphones and tablets, almost all of the focus is on how high the resolution of the screen is, or what the size of the screen is. The actual performance of the screen is typically an afterthought for most people. If you look at most OLED screens that are out there, they use the technology to push out a heavily over-saturated gamut to attract eyes, but not one that would make for accurate image viewing.
Since Apple made it a point at their iPhone 5 announcement to talk about full sRGB gamut coverage, I wanted to see if it actually could perform that well. Testing it as I would any TV or Monitor, I put it through the full gauntlet of tests, including grayscale, gamma, gamut, saturation, and Gretag Macbeth color checker charts. I also ran the iPhone 4 though them to see how performance has changed in the past two years. You can read the iPhone 5 Display Review at AnandTech and see if Apple can live up to their claims with the display, or if they fall short as well.
